Okay, I am wondering if someone could please help me understand why $150-$170 million dollars was spent on the Inauguration?? Why does our government continue to spend millions of dollars on a celebration, which I may add, is a great thing but $150-170 million? Our country is in an economic crisis and this scares me that this kind of money was put out this time around. I have looked up information and it seems that this is definately true. The largest amount ever spent on an Inauguration in history. I understand that this was a great historical day and I'm NOT knocking it but I do wonder why our government continues to spend enormous amounts on parties, bailing out companies and we have no clue where that money is being spent, etc., etc....when we, the people, are struggling to make ends meet. Just a question and if anyone has a good solid answer for me, I sure would appreciate it! Just can't seem to wrap my head around this!
I have $11.00 in my purse right now....sure would love to see some of the cash spent to helping the people!! Just my opinion and do not mean to offend anyone. I will continue to pray for our leaders but I don't have to agree how they spend the country's money! I do pray that our new President can help this economic crisis we are in. Lord, we need all the help we can get!
